Julian Assange, Daniel Ellsberg, & many others screens at Canberra Film Festival.

"Shadows of Liberty"

With opinions from people such as Julian Assange and Dan Rather, this hard-hitting documentary takes a critical look at the impact of corporate control over the media.

With the Levinson Inquiry underway in the UK, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange holed up in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, and Gina Rinehart calling for tighter control of the media, there couldn’t be a better time for this in-depth examination of the impact of corporate control over the media landscape. Canadian director Jean-Philippe Tremblay asks tough questions about just how government deregulation in the media industry in America has influenced freedom of the press and democracy, putting the questions to media personalities ranging from Assange, to Dan Rather and Amy Goodman.

“Tremblay marshals a wealth of evidence to demonstrate that government deregulation has paved the way for the perversion of the media’s newsgathering function.”
Julian Carrington, Torontoist
